Wacky winter storm Tuesday night and into Wednesday that we got about 10 inches of snow/sleet, even a bit of rain from. The kids got a snow day Wednesday too, which the boys were very happy for - especially Colton who used that extra day to finish a big project for English class. Now our temps are not expected to get much above freezing for then next week. So none of the snow we got will be melting any time soon. That really burns my butt as we just about had all our snow gone before this last dump.
Chyann continues to regain strength. It is a very slow process though. She is now using her crutches some instead of relying on the wheelchair all the time. She is absolutely terrified of breaking the new bone or bending her knee still. The docs say she'll get more bold (back to her old self) as the pain fades and she gets stronger. All her leg holes are healing well too, apparently they had to cut more holes in her to get the pins/wires out. She ended up having 15 total wounds on her leg instead of the original seven.
Colton is down to the last week before the play opens at the school. They are putting on the Princess and the mattress and he is the King. His character is that of a lecherous king, who ogles and chases all the women in the castle. The King was enchanted by a witch and he is unable to speak so most of his role is gestures and body language until the end. Should be interesting. Last Sunday the cast put on a Royal tea for the community. The cast wore their costumes, but no make up. Lots of kids came dressed in their best princess and knight outfits. They were all very cute.
